I play favorites, I won’t deny it. I have a favorite taqueria, pizza joint (one on the West coast and one on the East coast, of course), bar, a favorite donut shop and a favorite Animal Rescue Organization. Muttville Senior Dog Rescue is my favorite Animal Rescue Organization in San Francisco. This Potrero Hill-based organization does fantastic work and their dedication to saving senior dogs is incredible. I have been lucky enough to be the guardian for 3 Muttville Seniors and another one is on the way!
St. Francis of Assisi has looked fondly on our fair city by the Bay and has bestowed upon us an inordinate number of amazing and dedicated animal lovers in the rescue movement. As I see it, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue is at the top of the list. Go see for yourself at the Muttville Holiday Adoption Pop Up Shop! This pop up, affectionately referred to as a “pup up”, is an adoption center, retail space and resource space all in one.
Hop on your sleigh, or spin your way on your dreidel, and get down to 1259 Polk St (the corner of Polk and Bush) every weekend in the month of December — you have 3 more chances — to see Muttville’s adorable pooches who are up for adoption. The Pup-Up is open from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday. There are so many things to do once you’re there! You can grab treats from Paw Patch Pastries, get your dog’s picture taken with Santa Paws by Nuena Photography or Chung Nguyen Photography, or buy matching Muttville t-shirts for you and your canine best friend. Don’t forget to check out Small Club: San Francisco small dog walking , a dog walking, daycare, and boarding service for small-sized dogs of all ages. Personally, I like just hanging out and providing a warm lap for one of the Muttville mutts.
If you can’t make it to the Pup-Up Adoption Shop, maybe a Christmas Day walk at Fort Funston is more your speed. Meet at the parking lot at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday December 25th and join us for a leisurely stroll with the sweetest, most irresistible, zaniest pack of mutts !
